I enjoyed this story much more than the first but not nearly as much as the 2nd. The whole story was based on instant love but no trust. Every time one of them almost died, they swore they would never lose faith in the other again – until the next issue comes up. I honestly don’t see how they can actually live HEA. If they could have at least stopped this game 75% of the way through the book, enjoyed being with each other, and solved the plot issue together, it would have been much more enjoyable to me.more
While for me at least this book got off to a slow start it picks up in the middle and redeems itself in the end. I really enjoyed this trilogy and look forward to starting on her next trilogy soonmore
Another steamy read from this author. How could you not love these Campbell men. Duncan is the typical alpha male and is humanized by his love for Jeannie. The sex scenes are abundant and wicked in these novels and the author truly does do justice to the highlander romance theme.more
